About Trevor

I love making things and helping others do the same. I've built trebuchets, robots, and medical devices, among other things - all of which I've completed with the help of friends and supportive strangers. I've learned a ton from many great people in my community. I've recognized the value of learning by doing and the power of giving. One of my favorite books is Give and Take by Adam Grant and I couldn't be happier with my current ability to do what I love - collaboratively develop products, work on various engineering and design projects, and occasionally attempt to make art. One of my ongoing projects is to work on the design of this website. Please feel free to reach out if you have some feedback about the CoCreateX website. Thank you!
